King on Board

News From 15th June 2000

Brian Huxford

Alex King, the former Newcastle United commercial director, has resigned his post at Newcastle, and been co-opted onto the board of Grimsby Town.

King who originally hails from Grimsby, and made his name as a bookie in Grimsby, after a spell as a fisherman, joins the board with special responsibility towards the move to the new stadium at Great Coates.

The move was welcomed by club vice-chairman Bryan Huxford:

"He brings into the organisation as a non executive director an awful lot of knowledge of commercial activities.
"He has been a senior executive in football for 30 years and has been at the pinnacle for the last 15 with both Sunderland and Newcastle."

As Newcastle commercial director King has been at the head of a £50 million annual turnover business at St James Park.
